Chemical Engineering (ChE): Background Information

Information resources related to chemical engineering for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff.

Places to start

We have access to two major encyclopedias related to chemical engineering. Start here for concepts you are unfamiliar with, then move on to the handbooks below. Both of these resources are excellent for finding general process or flow diagrams for major chemicals and commodities - petroleum, chocolate, polymers, etc.
